In fact, doesn't the same problem apply to sessions started with 1.7.9-jumbo-5 (or older) and continued with magnum-jumbo or the next jumbo release (if we keep this functionality in and enabled by default)? If so, that's really nasty and a reason for us to reconsider. The dupe suppression on/off flag should be getting into .rec files somehow, such as due to it being a non-default command-line option (we don't have this currently, but we can add it). Alexander
